Hope you are all well and enjoying the holiday, Alan is still off work and as I am getting back into my soap making I placed an order with The Soap Kitchen and instead of having it posted out to me we collected it. Martin and Kate at the Soap Kitchen were brilliant and really helpful. We then went to the Asda in Clovelly, Devon as they sell the Pomace Olive Oil that I use in my soap, its the only Asda I know of that sells this particular type of olive oil unless I travel all the way to Bristol and I don't fancy that.
On the way home we stopped for a pub lunch and arrived home around 3.30 just in time to say goodbye to Sarah who is travelling to London to spend the New Year with friends, she will be home on Thursday.
My new website is coming along although not actually put any products on it yet will be doing that once I have sorted my new packaging out for my soap as I want to box it rather than wrapping so will be playing tomorrow with sorting that out as well as making some Honey and Oats Soap, made some Rose Geranium yesterday now it has to cure for around 4-6 weeks the longer you leave it the better the soap is. I also make some pillar candles and perfumed them with White Musk, now just need to make some more container candles as I sold out of those over the Christmas period.
I am highlighting today a project I started on before Christmas but have only just finished it over 100 flowers on this ball but it's so pretty am going to make smaller ones for weddings along with getting some wedding stationery set up for my new web site.
I have bought some fat squares to make a makeup bag and when the shops in Tavistock are open again am going to get some more material to make myself a sewing machine cover as the one that came with my sewing machine has split as it was made of thin plastic. Loads of ideas swimming around in my head, I would love to set myself up in business running a soap/candle making workshop and also showing people how to make talc, bath bombs and body lotion, but know this is not going to happen because of my health problems as I could not guarantee that I would be fit enough on any given day so I can dream.
Am off to do a bit of blog hopping now
Happy New Year to Everybody
See you in 2014
